    This press conference hasn’t started yet, and we already have 13 comments, most of which are off topic.

      Yeah, but until it starts, there’s no “on-topic” topic to discuss. I think people just like to “check in” with each other until the briefing gets going. And sometimes they provide some interesting or useful tidbits of news to rest of us waiting around.

        No “on-topic” topic to discuss? Shirley you jest. One could discuss what topics might be covered in the press briefing, or the status of current bills up for debate that might be brought up in the press briefing. Stella is admin here, were you aware? Your topic of discussion in this particular post belongs in the Open Thread, imo.

    Every economic measure is coming up roses for our President and his administration. There is absolutely nothing that the Dems, Rhinos, MSM, CoC, Big Club, Globalist etc. can do to stop it! Not even two massive Hurricanes can slow it down.

    https://www.peoplespunditdaily.com/news/economy/2017/09/12/small-business-optimism-matches-12-year-high-set-january/

    From the article linked above:

    The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Index of Small Business Optimism rose 0.1 points to 105.3, matching the 12-year high set in January. The percentage of small business owners planning to make capital expenditures in the next three to six months reached its highest level since 2006.

    “This is a sign of economic health that we’ve been expecting based on the soaring optimism that began last year,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Higher optimism resulted first in higher employment activity, and now we’re seeing more small business owners making capital investments.”

    “Consumer demand is very strong, and the regulatory relief has been dramatic,” said Duggan. “Small business owners still expect progress on tax reform and healthcare, and they will be watching closely.”

    “Small firms are now making long-term investments in new machines, equipment, facilities, and technology,” he said. “That’s a real sign of strength, and it will be interesting to see if the August result becomes a trend.”

    The reading beat the consensus forecast for a small drop to 104.3 from the equally surprisingly strong reading in July. It has been soaring since the election and inauguration of President Donald Trump. Though it wavered when Republicans failed to repeal and replace Obama, renewed optimism over the likelihood Congress passes President Trump’s tax reform package is undoubtedly fueling gains.

                I can’t stand the woman, she goes off of emotions rather than facts. She also doesn’t think her questions through, at least to me she doesn’t. For example, her question on the President’s phone. She is seriously asking if the General, his Chief of Staff, literally takes his cell phone away from him first thing in the morning and may give it back when the President leaves work for the night. At least that is how I took it.

                Does she seriously believe Sanders will just come out and say, “You’re absolutely right April, our President needs to be treated as a child, and therefore he is not allowed to use his cell phone unless of course he asks for permission first.” Really? Does she actually believe this to be happening?

                So, in my opinion, it is one of many of her stupid questions. How she got where she is is beyond me. She is mean, never smiles, accuses without facts and enjoys making things up and lives in a fantasy land. She is a waste of space in the briefing room along with many of her other associates.

                  Mai – this is a situation wherein one chooses an employee and/or representative based upon ‘color’ and not ‘character’ – upon eccentricity – not education and/or experience –

                  Most of the people in that room cannot use the brain God gave them – however, I do believe this is part of the ploy to characterize the President as mentally deficient and/or incompetent –

                  Read somewhere – next attack and/or accusation against the President (now that Russia is dead) is mental illness – unfortunately, it is a now a question of which one in the p-pool is the most mentally deficient – and childish!

                  If I had my way – I would take away the p-passes of those who do not qualify as journalists/reporters – I am certain there is book somewhere (an ‘old’ one – not progressively written) that lists the ‘Rules of Conduct’ – and ‘Asking Pertinent Questions’ – for ‘Reporters’ – oh, yes – I know – this one…

                Duchess, that was one of my most favorite books of all time. I had found it in a used book store while I was back packing across the western US. I so remember laughing and laughing in my little, red tent while reading it in the middle of nowhere. I remember the day perfectly. It was a bright, warm sun shiny day and I was surrounded by some of the most beautiful trees. I just can’t remember what state I was in. I did buy the book in Colorado or Wyoming.

                I borrowed that book to my Dad and I never got it back. He gave it to someone else to read. He was always doing that with the books I borrowed to him. I could make him swear he’d give it back and poof, it would be gone. The only time I was sad was one of the books I had gotten in Havre, Montana and it had been a local book by a local press. Since I didn’t have the ISBN number or title, it was gone. Otherwise, I knew if I borrowed a book to my Dad, chances were extremely slim on the return. Books are replaceable, and I would remind myself that before and after borrowing. It’s just the book was so darn good I had to share with him. He was the same. He saw the books were so good he had to share too.

                I did buy a copy of that book and I still have it. A beautiful, short read that will have you laughing and smiling.

                I still remember one of the chapters where he is explaining why he doesn’t want to rake all of the leaves up like his neighbor. I remember liking that one and following it ever since.
                Thank you for your insight, you are so right and thank you for bringing up such wonderful memories for me with that book.
                Beautiful day to you Duchess,
                Ma’iingankwe

                So I’m only allowed to write one book, is that it? Okay. 😋

                You know, you’ve got me thinking along with what you, Amwick, Ddonna and few other great Treepers have encouraged me to do. Maybe I should write a book of short stories. Heck, if I can’t find a publisher, it’s become far easier now to do it on your own. I know the chances are slim with a real publisher, especially if one doesn’t have an agent.

                Alright, I solemnly promise to try, and you’re right, short stories, one for each chapter would be right up my alley. I just wish I could find all of the stories I wrote of Ponytail Kim, my Dad and Ella. I should’ve really have written down the dates to make it easier to find. It’s doable though.

                I can guarantee my name Ma’iingankwe will be my authors name. It’s my real name after all. So at least that would be easy enough for the Treepers to find. 🙃

                To be honest, I never thought my writing was worthy for a book. I’ve always dreamed of being a writer, but never thought I had the vocabulary or even the adjectives to describe things like so many authors are good at doing. I’ve characterized my writing to be simple, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s just is what it is. I can’t be something I’m not, and trust me, I’ve tried and failed miserably.

                Duchess, you and other Treepers have made me feel really good inside, made me feel special and worthy. So, maybe just maybe I can make my big dream possible. Thank you ever so much for giving me that last push I needed. May you have an amazing day, kinda like you made mine. 😊

                  Oh, I’ve got Goosebumples BIGLY, Mai!

                  Tell you a secret – I only asked for (1) book because (1) denotes the ‘beginning’ of something – 🙂

                  Of course, I knew (in my spirit) one book would be the beginning of many to come – * Giggles *

                  Simple is good – and, you have a gift – given by the Creator – to tell a story that not only ‘paints a picture’ but, also a “builds a character’ – we are privileged to get to know the people in your life by your characterizations – their antics – their warmth – these are the stories that ‘stick’ in our minds – and provide life lessons – tell me – how could you let your fans down by not sharing your stories with a wider audience?

                  Vocabulary is overrated – the best writers are those who speak in simple ways to their readers – the message is lost in ‘big’ words – the average person does not have an extensive vocabulary – the story captivates the reader – as your stories have captivated us many times – it is not what you say, but how you say it – in your own unique way – you tell a story like no other can –

                  I will pray you find the stories you have written previously – many of them are here on the blog – and others are still alive in your memory – ‘go to the quiet’ – where the Creator can refresh your memory and inspire you – to write and share –

                  God Bless You, Mai – as your undertake a ‘new’ and exciting journey in your life!

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders keeps insisting that Pres Trump will not advise the DOJ on who to prosecute or not prosecute.

    ““That’s not the president’s role,” Sanders told reporters at the afternoon briefing, where she was asked if President Donald Trump would encourage the department to prosecute Comey. “That’s the job of the Department of Justice, and something they should certainly look at…I think if there’s ever a moment where we feel someone’s broken the law, particularly if they’re the head of the FBI, I think that’s something that certainly should be looked at,” Sanders replied.”

    Beg pardon, but, what? That is most def the President’s job.

    Alan Dershowitz 8 Jun 2017
    “the president can, in theory, decide who to investigate, who to stop investigating, who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. The president is the head of the unified executive branch of government, and the Justice Department and the FBI work under him and he may order them to do what he wishes.”

    ““It’s only fair that the people who are responsible for committing those crimes be held accountable. The public needs to have confidence that there is one system of justice and it applies equally regardless of whether that crime occurs on a street corner or in a boardroom.”

    Yates was referring to corporate executives, but her words are relevant.

      The president has the POWER to direct prosecutions, but most presidents defer to their AG to actually make that call. After all, why bother to have an Attorney General if he or she is just sitting over at DOJ with a butt in the chair?

      In order to prosecute someone for a CRIME, one has to have sufficient proof that a jury can be persuaded beyond a reasonable doubt.

      One thing continuing to amaze me is how many Treepers are so hung up on past slights and the need for payback. I would much rather prosecute leakers, Antifa, Mayors of Charlottesville, etc who have committed crimes during the CURRENT administration. We are supposed to be making the country great again. To my mind, that can’t happen if all of our negative energy is devoted to exacting retribution for past slights and sins.

      Besides, we don’t know that Hillary, Comey et al WON’T be prosecuted. But major investigations such as this take time. Please stop with the negativity and hand wringing. It is beyond tiring to read.
